Wrist pain from weightlifting. What should I do?

Cut back.: Not uncommon. As former uspf team physician, it was technique or over training. Howwver, if it does not abate you need to see a sports doc or orthopedist to rule out a fracture of serious sprain. X-rays are probably in order!

Ulnar sided wrist pain on lifting weights?

Ulnar sided wrist pain on lifting weights?

Impingement: This could be a due to a variety of conditions ranging from a simple strain or sprain or could be indicative of nerve, cartilage or bone injury. I would advise evaluation by a hand surgeon if this persists beyond 7-10 days for an exam and diagnostic imaging for such conditions as tfcc cartilage tear or ulnar plus variance, etc.

I have wrist pain when I bend my wrist and when I put weight on it, why? I can't do any workout that requires me to put my body weight on it.

I have wrist pain when I bend my wrist and when I put weight on it, why? I can't do any workout that requires me to put my body weight on it.

Need exam!: Apparently no hx. Of any injury to your wrist, correct? How long have you had this pain? Dominant hand? Pain w/ weight bearing could be many things including wrist sprain (scapholunate ligament injury), subclinical ganglion cyst, tfcc injury and a host of other things. See your ors for adequate history ; exam., etc. Good luck!

Wrist sprain: Sounds as though you likely have a wrist sprain. Although fractures initially, if minor trauma, may look benign in nature and the swelling and bruising may develop over the following hours. Something to keep an eye on and if worsens quickly, see your local doctor.

Wrist pain/ache runnindown the forearm slightly and fingers. Happens often. Over a year now. Iwant to weight lift butwhen I start a new problem arises?

Your body doesn't: Lie (from the neck down!) Listen to it. This symptom suggests some injury or nerve pain/dysfunction. Since it has persisted for a year, I would consult an Orthopedic Hand Specialist or Neurologist for diagnostic evaluation and possible treatment. Avoid any strain on your forearm and hand until you have pursued this. All the best:)

Ulnar Nerve entrapme: Hi Cindykay A700, What you describe could be an entrapment of the ulnar nerve at the wrist (Guyon's Canal) or further up at the inside of the elbow (by the funny bone). You need to see a hand surgeon for diagnosis and you may require nerve conduction studies to determine the exact location.

I have been having wrist pain during and after typing. What is wrong?

Carpal tunnel: It is most likely carpal tunnel syndrome and can probably be treated with wrist supports and a cushion under your forearms when typing. Seek a consult with a qualified hand surgeon.
